You are chatting with Natasha, an Apple Expert Her: Hi, my name is Natasha. Welcome to Apple! Good evening. How may I help you today? Me: Hi. I was wondering... why did Apple get all the iPhone 3G stock while AT&T was stuck with nothing? Her: Great question. Both retail stores have the iPhone, AT&T may have been out. While we do not sell the iPhone here online, we do offer the accessories and Applecare plan. Would you like help with your shopping? Me: Because I ordered an iPhone 3G from the AT&T store and they are telling me its backordered for 5-7 days. While, on the other hand, Apple stores still have iPhone 3G stock. I don't think its very fair. Her: Since the other retail stores are separate from us, I do not have the inventory of them. OK, thanks. Bye. Are you familiar with our AppleCare Protection Plan?
